Robert’s eclectic career interests have led him to live in seven different states and across the world in Japan. He currently works from home in the outskirts of the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex along with his wife and three boys. Outside of client work, he serves as a “minister of data” sharing visualizations and related resources about the Bible.
